Brescia: 'Balotelli is 8kg overweight'

The official Brescia website has updated Mario Balotelli’s details to show he now weighs 99.8kg – approximately 8kg overweight.

It’s another step in the battle between the club and their star striker, who has been excluded from training amid a contract dispute.

The data was changed on his profile in the official website, showing he is 190cm tall and weighs 99.8kg (216lbs).

This would make the forward approximately 8kg (17.6lbs) overweight.

Balotelli has often struggled with maintaining his best form, but this would be far beyond any acceptable level for a professional athlete.

The club and forward are taking legal action against each other over a variety of controversies stemming since the lockdown was lifted.
